In this paper, we propose an improved launch mode called multistage twisty multipole electromagnetic launcher. The twisty multipole magnetic field configuration is resolved, and the group power supply module is considered. The induced eddy current of the projectile is considered, and the analysis of electromagnetic force and torque has been performed. A full 3-D transient motion simulation with multiple degrees of freedom is carried on the three-stage twisty octapole field electromagnetic… CONTINUE READING
